Maria did a wonderful job explaining everything to us in English and the captain of our boat located a snake wrapped in the tree with his eagle eyes! We saw lots of wildlife and learned a lot!
Definitely a highlight thanks in part to an excellent guide - William - whose knowledge and passion was inspiring. The addition of a thunderstorm as we set off just added to the experience. Highly recommend that visitors take this trip and learn more about this vital ecosystem
Excellent knowledgeable guide - boat ride was relaxing & interesting. Next time we’ll try the kayaking option.
Damas Island is just off the coast of Manual Antonio National Park, and mangrove forest lines Damas Island's coast. For this tour you will board a high-tech motorboat and glide past mangroves, and eventually reach a good place to go fishing.
